Things change, and festivals appear and disappear. Especially in the post-COVID world and when economic times are tougher. It's sad but true. The following festivals in Australia were mentioned in earlier editions of this blog post but as there is no news about them (yet) we have moved 'em to this section. Great festivals, great memories. Fingers crossed they will return one day.
